Alex Kingston (ER, Doctor Who) stars in this award-winning and bitingly funny new comedy from the writer of acclaimed hit Bad Jews, direct from New York’s Lincoln Center, producers of Oslo.

Sherri is the Head of Admissions at a private school, fighting to diversify the student intake and she wants you to know about it.

When her son is deferred from his university of choice, and his best friend – who ‘ticks more boxes’ – is accepted, Sherri’s personal ambition collides with her progressive values.

Piercing and provocative, Admissions dares to question whether the race to the top is ever simply black and white.
